‘The Bar Model Approach to Problem Solving’

‘The Bar Model Approach to Problem Solving’

How do we introduce Bar Modelling, and how do we continue to use it as a valuable tool to solve problems?
Course Summary:
This two part workshop explores the Bar Model approach to problem solving enabling delegates to gain a better understanding of what Bar Models do, & how they work.
In the first session, we concentrate on using bars mostly for additive reasoning & will introduce the part/whole model & the comparison model. The second session focusses on multiplicative reasoning & considers how bars support the understanding of multiplication, division & fractions.
This course should enable teachers to:

  • See how Bar Models can be used across a wide range of concepts and topics;
  • Understand that this approach gives pupils a powerful & adaptable strategy for solving increasingly difficult problems;
  • Consider how Bar Models draw on the Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract approach used in mastery.

Target Audience: KS1 & KS2 teachers with an interest & focus on Mathematics
Date: Monday 25th March 2019 & Tuesday 11th June 2019
Time: Both sessions run from 4.00pm to 6.00pm
Course Venue: Chilton Community Primary, Stowmarket, IP14 1NN
Facilitator: Ruth Bull
